The untapped genius that could change science for the better



Jedidah Isler dreamt of becoming an astrophysicist since she was a young girl| but the odds were against her: At that time| only 18 black women in the United States had ever earned a PhD in a physics-related discipline. In this personal talk| she shares the story of how she became the first black woman to earn a PhD in astrophysics from Yale -- and her deep belief in the value of diversity to science and other STEM fields. ""Do not think for one minute that because you are who you are| you cannot be who you imagine yourself to be|"" she says. ""Hold fast to those dreams and let them carry you into a world you can't even imagine."
